Subject Re: Hive does not show data generated with HCatOutputFormat
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:41:01 GMT
I am wondering if the presence of _SUCCESS file is causing the empty
result. Can you try setting property
"mapreduce.fileoutputcommitter.marksuccessfuljobs" to false to disable the
generation of _SUCCESS file? Just a long shot but might not hurt to debug
